Rep. Bob Rommel today announced that he has agreed to serve as the Chairman of the Taxpayer Protection Caucus on behalf of Grover Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform. The concept of the Taxpayer Protection Caucus was developed by Americans for Tax Reform as a means of holding the line on new taxes in legislatures throughout the country.
“Taxation at every level of government continues to be the single biggest impediment to economic growth,” said State Representative Bob Rommel. “Conservatives in the Florida legislature have already been holding the line on proposed tax increases, but we must remain vigilant. Every year, there is more pressure by third party groups and liberals to raise taxes and increase spending. This caucus will be ready for action and to stop any proposed new taxes.”
Rommel has already carved out a reputation for taking strong conservative stands during his legislative career, fighting for small businesses and consumers across the board. He has fought for tax cuts and reform, spending reform, regulatory reform, and lawsuit reform. All of his efforts have been within the context of his desire to see Florida become the world’s destination for business.
Rommel added: “One of the important aspects of leadership is making sure to build an infrastructure for carrying important policy goals from one generation to the next. Our caucus will be an important part of helping to stop tax increases in Florida well into the future. I am honored that Grover asked me to take this on, and I look forward to working with ATR on an ongoing basis.”
